Donny,

A buddy of mine has a fuse panel with an ATC fuse-sized 30 amp breaker feeding the headlight switch. He also has a switch like the one on the right below.

Do switches like these typically have an internal circuit breaker? If so, should I simply replace the fuse panel breaker with a 30 amp fuse?




1982 C10 SWB pickup: Unmolested base truck, original paint. Originally had 250 six and 3-on-the-tree
Now has 355 with Vortec heads, RamJet roller cam, LS6 beehive springs, TH350
Retired, but working part-time on 50s-70s cars & trucks.

Never saw a switch like the one on the lower right. No idea what the terminal is for? As far as the CB, yes, these GM switches all have a thermal breaker in side of them, but it is now where near 30 amps, maybe 18-25 at best.
